Forces of Nature
Forces of Nature follows a movement of an articulate and complex organism composed of five persons with different energies and ideas. Their desires might not be the same, but they have a common goal: the construction of a shared physical and imaginary space.
Ivana Müller re-questions the idea of group movements in their physical, social and environmental contexts. The piece becomes a journey through a landscape in permanent transformation, composed of gestures, words and relationships that question the meaning and potential of what we have in common.
• Author and choreographer Ivana Müller grew up in Zagreb and Amsterdam. She currently lives and works in Paris. She has been a guest at Kaaitheater several times, for example with the ecological fable Conversations out of place.
